You can upload .fit .gpx or .kml route files to follow as you ride.

Real time plot available with your critical stats updated as you ride.

Repetitions can be counts or till time or distance targets. Support for FIT workout format file import and export. Feedback on target and progress.

Text to speech audio feedback available with customisation over what is read back and when.

IpBike aims to be feature rich - comparing to stand alone bike computes its Garmin 810 class rather than Garmin 200 or 500. If you want a simple app please look else where. If you want lots of features please be prepared to take time to learn how to use them see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=help


Limitations.

The free version of IpBike is limited to one million wheel revolutions (or equivalent in gps only mode 2070mm wheel). For permanent use after this you will need to get the IpBikeKey app which will unlock this limitation.


IpBike uses IpSensorMan to provide access to ANT+, Btle and BlueTooth sensors. If you have a compatible phone and do not have IpSensorMan installed you will be prompted to install it. You can use an ANT USB Stick if your phone supports USB host mode. For Hrv Muscle Oxygen and Btle you need the beta version see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=IpSensorMan-beta

Sold my garmin. Absolutely brilliant app. It does need you to pay attention while you learn the ropes but once that's done this app beats my old 810 hands down. You get a very comprehensive report for each ride which includes how much of the time you were pedalling and how long you spent in each heart rate zone. I have the app set to inform me over the headphones my speed, cadence and heart rate every 60 seconds and keep my phone in my coat pocket. Coupled with Google maps navigation I have everything I need. Awesome.

Great for Turbo Sessions Pros... Shed load of options. Works great for BOTH Ant+ & Bluetooth sensors meaning it's great for S&C & HRM compatibility. Cons... None really!! Although if I'm going to be picky, like others, the UI takes a few days to get to grips with but the level of complexity allows true customization. You can't have simplicity & complexity in one package. I love this app & well worth the asking price!! :)
